Photo: First look at Nebraska alternate uniform vs. UCLA

Nebraska will don a new adidas TECHFIT alternate uniform for its home game vs. UCLA on Sept. 14, the company and the Huskers announced Tuesday.

The uniform features a white helmet, with a black stripe down the middle, a black jersey and white pants, with a black stripe down the side of the legs.

It’s no surprise to see so much black implemented on a Nebraska alternate uniform, considering the Huskers defense is nicknamed “The Blackshirts.”

This one features even more black than last year’s alternate vs. Wisconsin. It’s also a better design than that all-red pajama-like look that others seemed to enjoy more than yours truly.

Like last year’s game vs. Wisconsin, adidas is marketing UCLA-Nebraska as an “Unrivaled Game,” which means the Bruins also will be wearing a TECHFIT alternate.

Here’s a couple other looks at the uniform:

These are the best alternate uniforms I have seen a Big Ten team wear yet. Northwesterns last year were pretty cool too.

I’m more a traditional Husker fan. I will take RED any day, any time. GBR!!

Better than last year but when will people understand yes the D is called the Blackshirts but black is NOT one of the colors of the school. Either make it an official color or get it out of these jerseys.

Well done, Nebraska.

If we wanted Penn State we would have gone to PA. Would prefer to beat you in the red we all respect.

Don’t like the Prison stencil number on the jersey!!!!!!!!!!!
Otherwise, a very good look but keep in mind we are BIG RED………..and if not, when will we wear pink, green, purple, etc. just to sell more merchandise?

For all you people whining that its black not red just stop. Black is an alternate color for every team just like white is. These uniforms are sweet
